Introducting: Western University


DEAD!

Recommended Posts

In Ontario we used to just refer to it as Western, much like here in Michigan the universities are just called Western, Eastern, Central, etc. That makes perfect sense, because the Ontario/Michigan is implied to locals.

Representing yourself as "Western" University, when you're located in the Eastern/Central portion of the country doesn't make a whole lot of sense...

I'm sure people throughout Canada know when bringing up "Western" it implies Western Ontario. I don't think there is another post-secondary school in this country that has "Western" in the name.

Being my university's (Lakehead) chief hockey rival I've really only heard the university referred to as Western. No one calls it the long drawn out name of 'University of Western Ontario'.

As far as the comment about it not making sense calling yourself 'Western' university even thought you are in the Central/Eastern part of Canada, from a geographical standpoint even the 'Western Ontario' doesn't make a lot of sense unless you exclude the northern 3/4 or so of the province of Ontario.
